Welcome to the second cardiovascular research track day at MedFarm. This half day educational event focuses on imaging in cardiovascular research and presentations of PhD projects to enrich networking. The event aims to involve preclinical and clinical researchers in cardiovascular medicine, surgery, pharmacy and physiology. The program for the event is attached below.
This time we will also allocate some time for presentation of selected research projects by PhD students. We would be grateful if you can suggest a presentation of your project during registration.
Participation in the cardiovascular research track day can be registered as part of the PhD candidates’ formal research education. Participation in two research track meetings during PhD studies (in combination with presentation at an international scientific meeting) results in 1.5 additional university points.
The event will be in English.
